of the party. folks that are trying to do comprehensive tax reform that you need to do, they're talking about taking tax rates to 25%. that's a republican principle. what stands in its way are people who won't even talk about revenue, because god forbid, if you take out all the xefrgss and deductions and let people play 25%, somebody will pay more, because they've been riding the back of the taxpayer with a loop-day-old hole. >> you mean taxes? >> no, i mean revenue. >> you mean taxes. >> of course, where does the revenue come from? >> republicans use terms like taxes and -- >> there are a lot of people at the top who aren't paying taxes, and i think that's what you're talking about. >> that means that some people taking advantage of loopholes have to start paying taxes. >> we should be talking about how to reduce government. >> we need to grow the economy. there's no way to solve it by cutting, cutting, cutting. >> not even realistic. >> but cutting taxes -- they gave it to the government. all that money none of that moan goes toward learning or innovation. it's essentially off the table for

as of december 31st, 2013. it says you may find your premiums you lower due to a new kind of tax credit in the nationalplace, you may qualify for plans -- even though -- isn't available outside of marketplace, the health care law also guarantees that you can choose a new plan outside the marketplace, even if you have a preexisting condition. my point is these insurers either want to keep the people in their -- that work in their policy, or they want to tell them -- they tell them about what's available in the marketplace units if it's available. >> but they have to do that, because the grandfather part of the bill says, if you have a plan that continues on, but the law says they have to find different coverage -- >> better coverage. >> different coverage, whatever that is, for the 50-year-old woman who is writing to me, i'm not going to have any more children -- >> and i don't have a prostate, okay? >> that's fine. so for folks saying they're now going to pay more, because they're not the grandfathering option. that's a myth there, because if a plan changes its coverage, if a plan chang

days, spies spying on spies and online health care sign up, more complicated than doing your taxes all designed by canada company. that and the president maintained your coverage won't change. >> if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. if you like your private health insurance plan, you can keep it. we'll keep this promise. >> of course, he didn't keep any of those promises as it turned out and what
on the tax payers' money. somebody's going to get fired on this. five weeks later -- >> if only the republicans had this kind of energy about getting people covered with health insurance. instead it's about glitches on a web site. >> i'm equally concerned about everyone getting one of these letters, bill, who's getting all these people from california to florida who's getting a letter in their mailbox or e-mail saying the plan that you have is getting terminated. your employer terminating their health care. i care about those people. >> i have to change the topic here, because i want to get to the other a word, that is the one i'm not going to say on the show. making headlines. tom coburn you both heard it republican senator "there's no comedy with harry reid. i think he's an absolute a hole. why go there." >> all right, sean, how do you defend that? senator coburn is usually a guy who often takes the high road. but this is the kind of stuff that makes washington look pathetic. >> well, i'm not going to defend the use of that kind of language. but i think that you're right in yo
no matter how you pay for it. whether it's private pay, tax pair pay, if the cost of health care is going up faster than wages and profits we can't sustain it. system reform is essential. >> i would agree with you, peter. that's one of the big missed opportunities with the president's health care is dealing with the cost of the health care supposed to focusing on who's going to provide it, government or private sector. >> congressman welch, given all the problems of the website including it remains down right now, these are critical days, obviously, in trying to encourage people to sign up, is it time to consider delaying some of the penalties for people who don't have the affordable care act provisions by the required dates? >> i think common sense fairness is that you have to align the penalties with the access to the web site. you can't impose a penalty on somebody who didn't get the coverage because the website was broken. i think we've got to be paying real close attention so that people have a fair amount of time in order to get on the website. and so i think a common sense approach is
by states with bipartisan support and input from its employers as we did without raising taxes phasing it in without seeing the disruptions we're seeing nationally. >> first of all, if you study carefully romney care, it's the second affordable health care in the united states. >> people in massachusetts like it. >> sure, and they pay for it, but you couldn't extend to the rest of the country. >> should individual states have done what massachusetts did, as opposed -- >> they were drifting in that direction. you look at vermont, which has adopted a single payer system, totally different than anyone else. >> you have romney hugging romney racare. he spent two years running from romney care, now he's promoting it. that said, romney care started out unpopular and glitchy. now it's popular and works well, the same will be said for obuma care. >> medicare in the '60s, they had a lot of problems early on. now everybody loves it. >> medicare in the '60s was a very different program than this. one of the things to remember is there were no losers with medicare. no losers in medicare part d. th
't expect any huge grand bargain. don't expect an agreement in the next several weeks on dramatic tax reform. you have paul ryan, patty morrie saying the same things, they want to talk, they're open to compromise. when you start asking about the details, are democrats ready to make big changes in social security and medicare? are republicans ready to make tax changes that include new revenues? you still get resistance. right now, the atmosphere is good. there are a lot of problems when it comes to the specifics. it's not time to put up a clock yet but we should have the control room staff having a deadline clock ready. we may dance through this again. >> and again, again, the issue continues to be new revenue taxes, however you want to label it we'll be talking about that much more. thank you so much, john. great to see you. >> the issues are not new. it's just a question of whether you can get a break. >> and if the political will is there to actually do something. we will see as i hate to say but have to say. thank you, john. >>> what's going on, michaela? >> i want to see him jump for joy
on top senate democrat harry reid's allegation against mitt romney that he hadn't paid taxes in ten years. this was very damaging at the time although it turned out to be untrue. where did that come if? the book says it came from john huntsman sr., the father of romney's republican political rival. long-time rival, chris -- kate. sorry. >> lots to talk about. jonathan marten is a national political kpon for tcorrespondee new york times." he wrote about these revelations. great to see you. >> good morning. >> lots of revelations in this book that you got the sneak peek on. there were rumors, speculation about biden out, clinton in. how seriously do you get the sense that they took this, even bill daly was looking into it. >> i spoke with bill daly yesterday on the phone. he was the chief of staff at this time. this is the fall of 2011. what he told me was that he and a handful of top aides were concerned about the president's prospects at that point. his poll numbers were really plunging and they were looking at options to try and bolster his re-election going into that year. and -- so i t
, this is a massive hidden tax. we wind up paying for that. that's a reason why health care costs so much. >> right, i agree with you and support the principles of obama care and more frustrated that the system failed allowing perhaps the whole thing to collapse. we don't know how it will play out but the very people they need to get enrolled, the young people that are healthy now that may have 30, 40, 50 years, they are the ones they have to get. if they are turned away from this -- >> first of all, every program of this size was a headache at first. so was bush's medicare prescription drug program for the old folks. remember that, hey, free viagra, have a boner on george bush. remember me at the polls. they didn't like that at first, now it's popular. s is, medicare, all these programs have these kind on problems when you start with them. but the reason why it's going to work is women. yes, young men do not want to sign up because they think they are invincible. women get it. women are a little more complicated. they want contraception, they want breast examines, they are smarter about that, they do
to the emergency room is counterproductive and for the people about the takers, this is a massive hidden tax. we wind up paying for that. that's a reason why health care costs so much. >> right, i agree with you and support the principles of obama care and more frustrated that the system failed allowing perhaps the whole thing to collapse. we don't know how it will play out but the very people they need to get enrolled, the young people that are healthy now that may have 30, 40, 50 years, they are the ones they have to get. if they are turned away from this -- >> first of all, every program of this size was a headache at first. so was bush's medicare prescription drug program for the old folks. remember that, hey, free viagra, have a boner on george bush. remember me at the polls. they didn't like that at first, now it's popular. s is, medicare, all these programs have these kind on problems when you start with them. but the reason why it's going to work is women. yes, young men do not want to sign up because they think they are invincible. women get it. women are a little more complicated. they
, but this has to be a bit controversial, right? >> absolutely. many folks don't want tax dollars going to this kind of thing. they say, it's their human right. as maxine said in that piece, people are paying for it. in the end, not the beginning. >> a healthy hose party? >> a healthy hose party. >> it's part of the population who couldn't get health care. >> high risk, as well. >> all right. your stories are always quite interesting. >> thank you, don. >> thank you. we appreciate that. let's get to the top of the hour and the top story now. >>> hello, everyone. i'm don lemon, you are in the cnn news room. it is 6:00 straight up here in the east. we are going to begin in los angeles. you need to watch this story. the widow of the tsa officer killed in the brutal attack at l.a.x. speaking out. listen. >> hello, everybody. thank you for coming out. i know you have been waiting for a statement from the family. thank you for respecting the fact we are hurting. my husband passed away. here is a statement. he was born and moved to the united states at the age of 15. he
? >> the first thing i think that's amazing is people believe poor people don't pay taxes. they pay the largest percentage. the people that will be impacted, the largest group within this group of lazy people would be children. then the seniors and then the disabled. this is the overwhelming amount. more than 40% of the people on this program actually do work. new york city, they have more than one job. i think that something that happens with snap that really is terrible is that we look at the program and we completely negate the reality of our economy. we say things like and believe things like the government will save $5 billion. the part they won't tell you is every dollar that goes into food stamps, it returns $1.73 to local economy. so it's not just that government is going to save $5 billion. everyone is about to have millions of dollars snatched right from your town and no one asked you. >> many lawmakers would say the economy is getting better. mine it would be slow but it's getting better. the unemployment rate is going down but it's time to wean people off the system. >> that would b
grants? well over $2 billion. this is how much of your tax money has gone to helping the states get ready for obama care. >> the white house has pointed out that some of those state exchanges, they are working quite well, suggesting the money was well spent. >> they have said that, and that may be a fair claim. other places are not helping much with their arguments. for example, if you look at colorado, colorado has received almost 179 million to help deal with 716 uninsured residents here. so far just over 3,000 have enrolled. this is early in the process. much of this will change as it moves forward, but again, they make it look very costly. >> tom foreman, thank you. >>> still ahead, is the vatican vulnerable to u.s. spying? we're looking into a bombshell report in italy a key american ally tells me, though, anything is possible. >>> plus an update on the breaking news. the story we're following, a school bus that went off a bridge in kansas. across america people are taking charge of their type 2 diabetes with non-insulin victoza®. for a while, i took a pill to lower my blood sugar,
